SNS February Creative Challenge

Hi all, and happy February!  Can you believe it's already February!  We're 1/12th into 2013!  Well, I guess I'm having fun - 'cause the time sure is flying!  Our Challenge this month, with Sparkle N Sprinkle, is this wonderful Design seed.   Isn't this cool?

As I was preparing dinner this evening, January 14th, (yes I know, this was pre-posted!) I was watching the news and they were showing how the new World Trade Center Building, was going to be taller than the Empire State, making it the highest building now in NY.  It seemed fitting to work on this project tonight!

I've had the "seeds" sitting by me all through the festive season, being overlooked on several occasions, as I really was thinking buildings!  Then for for some reason today - I don't know why - or how - I was "under the sea"!

I really loved how this came out - although I have to say there are no Sparkle N Sprinkle stamps used here (in fact there are no stamps!), but there is plenty of SNS product!  




Full details for this card can be found in the SNS gallery.

... and for more inspiration have a look here, to see what the other Designers came up.  Remember the new rule - although we'd prefer it, you don't have to uses SNS images!

Did you know that Sparkle N Sprinkle is now carrying some of the Lifestyle craft embossing folders and die cuts?  The one featured here is one of two of the Tide embossing folders.    Check back later this month for the February blog hop, to see how I incorporated the other one into a project. 

'Till then, keep stamping!
